Buy Photinia × fraseri Chico ('BR2011') (PBR) photinia: A new compact photinia

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: most fertile, well-drained soils
  • Rate of growth: average to fast growing
  • Flowering period: April and May
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection)

    Like its close cousins, the newly emerging foliage of this new photinia is flushed with red before it matures to a rich green. The thing that sets Chico apart however is its compact habit, which makes it perfect for adding year-round interest to pots and borders - as well as creating low hedging.

  • Garden care: To encourage a profusion of bright young leaves in late-spring or summer shorten the stems of established specimens by up to 15cm (6in), to just above an outward-facing bud. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
